TED NELSON'S PUBLISHED PAPERS ON COMPUTERS AND INTERACTION, 1965 to 1977.   The pages are numbered in the order in which I was able to find the articles, when I hurriedly published them (by Xerox copier) in 1977. It was this book that persuaded John Walker, founder of Autodesk, to back the Xanadu® project in 1988. The illustrations in "New Media and Creative Facilities" (pp. 5-7), are of particular interest.  This large leaflet (on 11x17 paper) was printed around 1965, when I was...

These are the texts used in the XanaduSpace demo  and the OpenXanadu Demo at http://xanadu.com/xanademos/MoeJusteOrigins.html (In that demo, holding the space bar down continuously  allows you to follow to the origin of each quote.) "Moe Juste" is a pseudonym a number of people  have used independently, a pun on the French term "mot juste".  In this case, Ted Nelson is the author.

Ted's plan in the 1970s for world electronic publishing  was to store content at "Xanadu stands",  which would deliver the content on request  through the network.  (There was no public network yet,  that was just ASSUMED.)

The New York Times requested this piece in 2011 for a special multi-author issue about the future.  They then cut it to a few paragraphs, gutted the style and the cynicism, and MADE AN INCORRECT CHANGE-- I said we were running out of Internet addresses (true); they changed it to running out of Web addresses (false). When I yelled, they changed it in the on-line version, but the print version had me stating an untruth. The Times' version is lousy.  My original is still surprisingly relevant.

About the author/family: Her married name was Jean Parke Holm long before this work was published. Her only child, Celeste Holm, was a star on Broadway and a popular supporting actress in Hollywood. Her grandson, Theodor Holm Nelson, came up with the idea of hypertext in 1960. Both Celeste Holm and Theodor Holm Nelson were raised by Jean Parke and Theodor Holm.

This documents the houseboats of South Forty Pier,   in Sausalito, as they were in 1988. We start with the lovely boat I was renting,  in Berth 18 (greatly changed, it is now at the end  on Berth 20). My son Erik and I video the mud flats  and the other houseboats of the dock. The dock has been upgraded and gentrified  considerably since then. This is of particular interest to residents now.

This book was the handout for Ted's seminar,  "Cinema of the Mind," in 1994  (handed out at U.B.C.) There has been no time or opportunity  to rewrite it since then,  though parts of it have been in  all of Ted's lectures. Ted's term, "virtuality"--   in its original sense, SEEMING--  is the central concept of the book. The breadth is challenging--  the design of structure,  the philosophy of ideas,  the strong resemblance to cinema,  and the need for a director.

How shall we visualize time?   (See end for MANY PAGES OF PICTURES.)

(NOTE: Enclosed PDF tells the story in detail.) This radio play, produced in 1997,  is about Ted Nelson looking back from the year 2015,  and the immense impact that the Xanadu project  has had on the world.  (At least, according to the script.) However, this did not happen in 2015. The guy who plays Ted Nelson doesn't sound like Ted Nelson,  but the show sounds pretty interesting, even if you don't know Finnish.
